Savings Calculator

This tool helps you determine the ROI of using the Scotchgard™ Ultra Durable Floor Finish System. With seven times the abrasion resistance and film thickness of traditional acrylic floor finishes, it is more stain resistant than two-part urethane finishes, helping to reduce costly maintenance. And third-party claims indicate that eliminating the periodic maintenance associated with other floor finishes can result in up to a 50 percent savings in labour and chemicals.
